] >> you bet. megyn: well, president obama may have won re-election, but we still don't know much, know by how much. that is because they are still counting the ballots down in florida. as of this morning just six-tenths of a percentage point separated the president and governor romney. most of the remaining ballots are from miami-dade county because there was a last minute wave of absentee ballots that have yet to be processed. if the president wins florida, it will increase his electoral count but not change the outcome of the election. after months of campaigning and hundreds of thousands of phone calls, washington looks very much the same. next hour, the same. how many segments, how many dollars, how many discussions? the same. next hour we're going to speak to karl rove to explain what he really thinks happened on tuesday. how did the republicans lose? and we will get his thoughts on that a couple days after. ♪ megyn: a major setback today for millions in the northeast still recovering from the last week's devastating hurricane sandy. powerful winds, rain and snow -- i mean, it w
question in the election. it was debated over and over again. on tuesday night, we found out that the majority of americans agree with my approach. that includes democrats, independents, and a lot of republicans across the country, as well as independent economist and budget experts. that is how you reduce the deficit with a balanced approach. so our job now is to get a majority in congress to reflect the will of the american people. i believe we can get that majority. speaker boehner agreed that tax revenue has to be part of this equation. i look forward to hearing his ideas when i see him next week. i would like to make one final point that every american needs to hear. right now, congress has failed to come to an agreement on an overall deficit reduction package at the end of the year. everyone's taxes will go up on january 1. everybody's come including a 98% of americans who make less than $250,000 a year. that makes no sense. it would be bad for the economy and would hit families that are already struggling to make ends meet. fortunately, we should not need long negotiat
focused on the election here and the general petraeus issue and so on that we have not gotten to this important situation in israel. as, leland, there is a possible concern of a ground war escalating there not just involving hamas and israel, but perhaps the region. and just to bring you up-to-date, they've had close to 150 missiles fired today alone, we're told, sorry, rockets fired today alone. the locals there ordered by authorities to stay close to a network of public bomb shelters, and israel says it will not tolerate a situation where its people are under constant threat of rocket fire. all of that is happening today just one day after a top a maas commander was taken out in an israeli air strike. the mourners were chanting at his funeral that they want to kill in the name of god and the enemy would bear the consequences. today those consequences included a deadly attack in southern israel, three people killed when their apartment was hit by a rocket, and now there are new signs that hamas' capabilities may be growing. a rocket landed just outside of tel aviv in the last
it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. friday the president accepts the resignation. we find yesterday the fbi raiding the home of paula broadwell. then we find out general allen has been involved in emails with joe kelley, so you have like four or five different events happening in the last seven days when for the prior five or six months nothing happened publicly. megyn: let me jump in. there are so many names that i think the viewers may be confused. the top line item here is that the general admits, general petraeus, the head of our cia admits to having this affair with now the woman we know as his biographer. there are questions about who in the administration knew. can you explain to the viewers who are sitting at home thinking this man is a decorated war hero, he's responsible for the architecture of the successful surge in iraq which saved a lot of lives,
, they mean it. they actually have consequences. you know, the president says elections have consequences. one of them is obamacare, as john boehner put it the other way, it's the law of the land. that means that businesses are going to be laying people off. that means that over eight million americans who are part time are going to continue to work part time until we see a real resurgence in this economy, certainly. because it's just not economical for the employer to move ahead. it's cheaper for them, in fact, to pay a $2,000 fine. imagine this, to pay $2,000 for an employee they didn't hire who they've hired and not put them on an employee-sponsored insurance plan. this is the exact reversefect of what we had, you know, been told would occur. but we should be used to that, because so much of the -- so many of the consequences have not been intended because they were never thought out by this congress, the previous congress. and we're looking at people saying it's partisanship. let me give you an example of why that's pure bull, shannon, many i fay. shannon: please do. >> one of the companie
